Manannan Cubs Sixers & Seconders Camp

image

Over the weekend 13. – 14. July 2012, some of the Sixers and Seconders from the Manannan Cub Pack visited Watertrough Cottage. Everyone arrived by 7pm, and after a quick briefing we went on a small hike up South Barrule, all Cubs and Leaders made it without any problems and after a very quick decent down, we played some Man Hunt games in the plantation followed by roasting Marshmallows on a open fire. After this we have supper and went to bed.

The next morning was an early start, after breakfast we all travelled to Peel where we did some Coasteering with Adventurous Experiences, all the Cubs had a really good time and even Akela and Mark joined in the activity as well. It was very tricky and the Sea was a bit rough but all the Cubs managed to cope with everything that was thrown at us. After some lunch in Peel, we travelled back to Watertrough to finish off the Promise Challenge Badge work before heading off home. Well done to all the Cubs who were there over the weekend, and a special thanks must go to Kieron and George for the Coasteering and not forgetting all the thousands of Midgies at Watertrough Cottage.

Manannan Pack Day Hike

image

On Sunday 13. May 2012, the Manannan Pack along with their Leaders took part in a eight mile day hike from Derbyhaven to imagePort Soderick.  We all met at 10.30 at the flying club where we followed the Raad Ny Foillan footpath, we stopped a couple of times along the way for drinks and refreshments, our first official stop was the beach at Port Solderick, after a brief break, we carried along on the footpath towards Port Grennaugh where we had our lunch at around 12.30.  After a play on the beach and an explore in the caves, we carried on with the walk onto Port Soderick.  We finished at Port Soderick at 3.45 a little later than planned but nevertheless we all made it. The weather stayed dry for us, although a little windy it didn’t prevent us from hiking.  Thanks to all those who showed up and this walk goes towards the hikes away badge.
